Hi Folks!

I have an editbox which I want to use as password box.

1. when the text = 'Geef wachtwoord in'  It should be cleared when the user clicks in it
2. It should show * instead of the password characters
3. When the user clicks somewhere else ie changed his mind and does soemthing else, it should show 'Geef wachtwoord in'
4. It should validate the input, password will be 1234 thus 4 numbers

If you need more info (or more points :)) please ask,

Regards,

Peter

  Dialogs, StdCtrls;
 
type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Edit1: TEdit;
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Edit1Enter(Sender: TObject);
    procedure Edit1KeyPress(Sender: TObject; var Key: Char);
    procedure Edit1Exit(Sender: TObject);

procedure TForm1.Edit1Enter(Sender: TObject);
begin
  with (sender as TEdit) do

    passwordchar:='*';
  end;
end;
 
procedure TForm1.Edit1KeyPress(Sender: TObject; var Key: Char);
begin
  if not (key in ['0'..'9']) then
    key:=#0
  else
    if length((sender as TEdit).Text)=4 then
      key:=#0;
end;
 
procedure TForm1.Edit1Exit(Sender: TObject);
begin
  with (sender as TEdit) do
    if length(text)<>4 then
    begin
      text:='Geef wachtwoord in';
      passwordchar:=#0;

end;
 
end.

  PixelsPerInch = 96
  TextHeight = 13
  object Edit1: TEdit

    Top = 80
    Width = 121
    Height = 21
    TabOrder = 0
    Text = 'Geef wachtwoord in'

Hi ciuly,

I apologize, I was wrong it does work thanks! Validating the input by means of the button click, involves no rocket science right?
